Warm, cosy, and tucked away in a corner of St Ives – a dreamy bolthole for two. At the bottom of a narrow curved cobbled (mostly pedestrian) street, made of lovely chunky granite with fresh white windows, this tiny one-up one-down is in the hub of town, strolling distance from absolutely everything. The friendly owners who live close by could not have renovated it more beautifully. You walk into a rustic-chic sitting room with a super-comfy sofa and hand-painted furniture, white walls, white beams, a rug on a limestone floor, a wood-burner in the original stone fireplace, and an immaculate kitchen to the side in Farrow & Ball whites and greys. Then it’s up narrow stairs to delicious bed: sturdy wood shelves for bedside tables, a wardrobe set into the stairwell (brilliant), a white window seat beneath a Roman blind, local art on the walls and a sumptuous bedhead. No stinting on the bathroom: it has a bath AND a waterfall shower! Cornish cream tea awaits (the owners run a restaurant), there are DVDs, books and games for romantic nights in, and your own parking space a five-minute walk.
